Rose Murray Brown, writing in The Scotsman, named this Syrah from Waiheke Island in New Zealand as her star buy this week.

Her article emphasised how Syrah is currently developing and thriving in New Zealand in particular around Hawkes Bay and Waiheke Island.

Hard to Find Wines is currently stocking the Man O War Dreadnought Syrah 2009 at £25.99, a wine with ample ripe fruit and blueberry and pepper notes. Although the wine can be enjoyed now, it will certainly improve with a little further cellaring.

From Hawkes Bay we also have another Syrah from Moana Park Estate, a winery which since it's inception has embraced both organic biodynamic practices.

Moana Park has two Syrahs to choose from, the 2011 Estate Syrah at £12.99 and the premium Estate Reserve Syrah 2010 at £15.99, both great value wines.
